A young, enthusiastic USPS customer recently received a special tour of his local Post Office.

Jaden Peavler greets Henryetta, OK, Letter Carrier Phillip Black almost daily as he delivers mail. The two have also struck up a friendship.

Inspired by the child’s excitement for daily deliveries, Black invited Jaden — who uses a wheelchair — to tour the Henryetta Post Office.

On the day of his visit, Jaden met Black’s co-workers, who showed him what each of their jobs consists of on a daily basis.

“It was an honor and pleasure for the young man to visit our office,” said Postmaster Shellie Padilla. “He showed how much he loves the mail and the people who deliver the mail every day. What an inspiration and great start to our day.”
